At Ambito Education (part of the Salutem Group), we believe everyone should have the opportunity to live a healthy and fulfilling life, regardless of their background or disability.
Ingfield Manor School is an INMSS residential special school that offers both residential and day programmes for pupils with PMLD or ASC associated difficulties. We also have recently opened a specialist Post 19-day college provision that is registered as a satellite of and working alongside Beaumont College in Lancaster.
At IMS we work as one team to make a difference to the lives of our students. Our aim is to enable students to take responsibility for their own lives in whatever form this takes.
Within IMS we have three different cohorts that share a common location and ethos but which have separated access.
Students are offered a variety of specialist support from highly trained staff, working alongside our teachers. Each student accesses the curriculum daily with a bespoke package of intervention, therapeutic support or through one-to-one teaching and this allows them to make considerable progress towards their EHCP outcomes.
We are a centre for Conductive Education and offer this to our students with complex physical needs. This is led, in class, by approved Conductors to enable students to learn more specific and complex physical actions which will be learnt naturally by most children.

As Principal, there is an expectation of enabling strategic leadership, operational oversight and providing direct support and guidance to the three different branches of our educational offer: being IMS school and the newly created Woodview Provision and Post 19. All of these have seen substantial growth in recent times, and we need the Principal to have experience in multi-area management and provide effective dynamic support for a range of cohorts within one site.
Whilst retaining the uniqueness of each provision and striving to increase engagement from local and surrounding LA's, the Principal is also accountable for HR, H & S including risk management and the safeguarding of our students.
